I was thinking of how the word god is so limiting for me. I rarely use it anymore because it is so tied to religious viewpoints. Everyone seems to have an idea pop into their head when they say or hear the word ‘god’ of who or what that is and how we should all believe.

I much prefer the concept of Universal Consciousness, or, as I have called it before, the ‘Ocean of Love,’ in which we are all immersed! Rather than identify with a god that is separate from me and to “whom” I need to be reconciled, I resonate in the Oneness in which we are all a part of each other and the universe! This a basic tenet of shamanism.

There is a powerful joy in being joined with trees and animals and sky and water and humankind and sun and stars as we all whirl together in the dance of living and loving, all one in the Great Mystery!

“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.” – John Muir
